So many flavors to choose from! I like that they include allergy information for all the flavors. I stopped on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, so it was really busy, and it looked like the person serving us was working by themselves but the line moved quickly.

Our favorite ice cream around, has so many unique flavors to choose from. I’ve never seen some of the flavors they have at other ice cream stands. The people there have always been really nice and there are picnic tables to sit at and mini golf/driving range next door.

Wow!! Where do I start!! The soft serve is amazing definitely come to just try it! But the real game changer is the mini sundae!! It’s the perfect size and the ice cream is delicious! If you haven’t been yet definitely stop by you won’t regret it.

Old time roadside ice cream stand vibe. Clean, bright, music playing, mini golf and driving range next door. Ice cream was quality, I had the strawberry cone and it was excellent. I had my pup with me and they even gave her a small dish of vanilla on the house.

Stopped by the Big Dipper Ice Cream Stand after dinner tonight. The ice-cream was awesome as usual. The staff is friendly and quick. Nice place for an ice-cream.

Review №7

Wonderful selection of flavors with some unique flavor combos- we had a cherry ice cream with burgundy cherries and an espresso toffee ice cream. Nice clean white picnic tables available. Driving range and mini golf are next door, so plenty to do for an outing.

Review №8

Lots of great flavors and toppings with cool music and a fun mural on the side. They did a great job with physical distancing. There was also a nice sunset the day we went!

Review №9

Review №10

Great experience!! The owner has a fantastic attitude about how to sell the best Real Ice Cream peoducts. We are certainly going back AND the Banana Split was huge for the price, good value and originally built, that is what we feel about this well built Ice Cream Shop.

Yummy ice cream! 😋 The ice cream is locally homemade and is so creamy and delicious. They serve both soft serve and hard ice cream. They are conveniently located between a mini golf and flower nursery. The staff is really friendly and taking the proper precautions for COVID-19 pandemic. Note: Cash Only

All four of us enjoyed our selections.

Review №17

Specifically said my son has a peanut allergy. He gets half way through his cotton candy ice cream and theres a huge brown streak in it. Safe to say precautions were not taken for his allergy. Usually such good service, not so much today. And for a $6 ice cream 😕

Review №18

We liked the ambiance of the setting, ice cream was very good-my doggie got a free ice cream, the young people were very pleasant and helpful while ordering- who hears please and thank you anymore? :)The only 2 complaints that I have is that I ordered a soft serve and it was handed to me already melting. :/. Made for a messy back of the car while trying to eat the cone, and the kiddie ice cream cone was $4.50! Very pricey little kid cones.But, I think I’ll pay the extra price is the future for the great ice cream, the pleasant servers, and the area is so quiet and relaxing. We will be back. :)

Nice flavors, large variety, and you dont have long lines like there often is at Dandelions. Big Dipper is more pricey but its worth it when you dont want to wait in a long line.
